The new year is a time for reflection, a time to think about where you’re at in life and how you could improve the quality of your day-to-day experience. While this typically takes the form of resolutions to visit the gym more regularly, meditate every day or finally start that novel you’ve been meaning to write, it can be healthy to take on more modest resolutions that are achievable in the short term. One such resolution may be to improve the overall decor of your home by installing fresh window treatments. This may not bring about a revolutionary change in your life, but subtle improvements add up over time into a good and comfortable life.
The Affordable Blinds website can certainly give you some idea of the wide array of products we offer, as well as the design and installation services that our friendly staff can provide by visiting your home and assessing your options. Between controlling the way light is filtered into your home and by matching window treatments to your interior design, we can help you make a positive change to your environment.
Below are a few general ideas for products you may be interested in:
Roller shades are fantastic for the bedroom because they minimize the amount of morning light that comes in, allowing you to get all the sleep you need. If you work nights as a bartender or musician this can be especially helpful. Our roller shades come in different colours and textures, so don’t imagine that they’re going to completely black out and dull your space – they’ll just keep the light out when you need to sleep.
Woven Wood Shades:
Woven wood shades – especially in natural wood colours – can add an air of relaxed sophistication to your living room, especially if you have a dark leather couch and employ a lot of dark red and mauves.
Cellular Shades/ Honeycomb Shades
These types of shades are made from modern materials, they allow a good amount of light in and are ideal for the office or kitchen. They have a lovely texture and create an extremely relaxed atmosphere. The latest collection of Hunter Douglas shades comprises several great examples of lovely cellular and honeycomb shades that are easy to maneuver and child safe as well.
Sunweave shades are excellent for the kitchen or the office because they protect your desk or counter (not to mention yourself) from harmful UV rays while still allowing you to see outside. Great if you have young children playing in the yard and you want to keep an eye on them while you cook!
Faux Wood Blinds
Here at Affordable Blinds, we love wood blinds for a more rustic, classic look. However, if you’re interested in installing wood blinds in your bathroom, we recommend opting for faux wood to avoid warping from the heat and moisture. Call us or visit our website to browse our huge selection of window products and see all of your options for wood or faux wood blinds.
Happy New Year to you and yours from the Affordable Blinds team! We hope you 2018 brings you much light and joy!
